Saint Augustine's University showed its appreciation for the surrounding community during Falcon Community Day, Saturday, Dec. 8, at Emery Gymnasium. Community members were invited to watch the men's basketball team take on Barber-Scotia College. Admission was free for the contest, and the Falcons did not disappoint the crowd, defeating Barber-Scotia 101-50.
At halftime, three local citizens were honored for their contributions in the community. Mary E. Sharpe received the community service award and Sterling Goodwin, founder of Metro Redevelopment, earned the community business award. Michele Grant, who was not present, was the winner of the community leadership award.
